Sequels, the meme

I always see other people posting memes on their LiveJournals, but I never see a meme get started. Maybe that's part of their allure.

Anyway, as an experiment in cat-vaccuming, I'm going to try to create a meme. I'm going to call it Sequel, the meme, and if you like it, copy it onto your own journal and see if it spreads and if so where.

Here it is:

Movie Sequel: If you could have a sequel to any movie you wanted, what movie would it be?

Buckaroo Banzai Across the Fifth Dimension 'natch. I would love for them to finally make ... World Crime League and I think enough time has passed that it would be made by someone who loved the original movie and would do right by it.

Book Sequel: If you could have a sequel to any book you wanted, what book would it be?

I guess I would choose Red Harvest simply because I love the Continental Op's character.

TV Remake: If you could remake an old TV show, which would you choose?

Last year I would have chosen Kolchak: The Night Stalker but that didn't turn out too well. I guess I would ask for The Six Million Dollar Man after giving it a major overhaul.

TV Adaptation: If you could turn one movie into a TV show, or one TV show into a movie, what would you choose?

This is cheating a little since it started as a radio play, not a movie, but I would choose a TV show based on The Shadow, but updated to modern times.

Hollywood Bites Book: If you could pick one book to be adapted into a movie or TV show, which would it be? (note--you can't choose books you've written)

This one is more difficult: I guess I would pick jaylake's Rocket Science as a movie. Lots of great choices there, though.


Okay, that's the end of the meme. I think five questions is a good minimum size for these things. Let's see if it spreads, and if it doesn't, if I can figure out why not.
